One Potato Two Potato Three Potato Four--

I bought a bag of tiny fingerling potatoes today because they were so, well, cute.  Then I painted them before chopping them up and smashing them for dinner.  Does anyone remember standing in a circle in the schoolyard, everyone holding out a fist, and the leader tapping each person's fist in turn while counting One potato-two potato-three potato four, five potato six potato seven potato more.  You-are-well-and-tru-ly- IT!  And whoever's fist/potato was landed on was IT.  This was a deadly earnest ritual, never subject to questioning or arguments.  I always think of the potato chant when I see a bunch of little potatoes.
